Image based on Petr Exner's Vexilologický Lexikon prapory obcí ČR (1999) - Lichkov, Ústí nad Orlicí district, Pardubice region - adopted 27 Apr 1999.
The settlement was founded in the 13th century but it is not known when it was promoted to a village. The present emblem goes out from the historical emblem of the village.
The description of the emblem - two green hills grow out of the blue lower foot of the shield which is silver in colour. A spruce of natural colours grows up on every hill. Between the spruces is a small red shield with a silver ploughshare. The hills represent Eagle mountain where Lichkov lies. The blue foot of the shield represents the river Silent Eagle which flows through the land of the village. The spruces remind the forests in the surround of the village. The small shield with the ploughshare has been taken from the historical emblem of Lichkov.
